Once the islands were used for vacation by the sons of the Byzantine kings. And nowadays they are famous for beautiful sandy beaches, old and wooden mansions and with their fresh air all around year.
We will start our tour by picking you up from the hotels according to the locations. After we pick up everyone in the group, you will take the boat to the Prince’s Islands. The boat ride takes about 1 hour to the first island which is called Heybeliada in Turkish ( Χάλκη/Halki in Greek). On the first island you will have a horse carriage ride and then chance to take some photos with the nice view of the islands and the Sea of Marmara. After that you will take another boat to the biggest of the Prince’s Islands which is called Buyukada in Turkish (Πρίγκηπος/Prinkipos in Greek). When you reach to Buyukada, the guide will give you a general information about the Prince’s Islands and then you will go to the restaurant for lunch where you can enjoy the fresh seafood or delicious Turkish kebab or vegetarian
food. And after the lunch you will have free time on the island. During the free time you can have chance for swimming on the island. After the free time you will meet with the guide at the meeting point and turn back to Istanbul.
